The Avett Brothers “Homecoming” at MerleFest

Concord, North Carolina’s own Avett Brothers will be having a homecoming of sorts, closing out MerleFest on the Watson Stage Sunday afternoon. Only 79 miles from where the Avett’s were born and raised, MerleFest has seen the band of brothers return time and time again. From kids spending time at the festival while their dad, Jim Avett, who is leading this year’s MerleFest Sunday morning gospel hour, to their first appearance as a band in 2004, to their most recent performance which saw record-breaking attendance numbers for the North Carolina festival, the Avett Brothers are attuned to the magic that MerleFest brings out in fans and bands alike. Be sure to see them in their purest element at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday.
